I remember walking to school barefoot to school in the snow, uphill both ways... and there were actual card catalogs...
The Kid was totally loving visiting DC, especially since her aunt and uncle had some new/old toys at their house. My sister won this Fisher Price record player from eBay. It is the exact same kind we had when we were little, so I was thrilled to see it as well.
Although, the Kid kept call them CDs and got really confused when her old geezer of a mommy asked her to get the "record player". Seriously, *crickets* + blank stare.
And BTW, if she ever challenges you to a game of Sorry!, run, don't walk, in the opposite direction. I am sure that she has been secretly learning how to trounce adults at this game. It was kinda embarrassing.
Although, if I teach her how to hustle pool games, she could earn her keep. She would just need a couple of phone books to stand on.
